Billi Mucklow – who is due to wed Carroll in just two weeks’ time, eights years on from his proposal – reportedly replaced her icon with a photo of the couple’s children after the ex- Liverpool flop was pictured bare-chested “in bed” with blonde Taylor Jane Wilkey. Mucklow, who was also celebrating her hen do in the United Arab Emirates last week, is said to be furious about the situation.
The Sun report while Carroll is in hot water with The Only Way is Essex star, plans for the wedding remain in place following their 2014 engagement, and there is no suggestion that anything sexual took place between Carroll and anyone else.
“Billi believed Andy and stood by him but now she doesn’t know what to think,” a source told the newspaper. “She wants answers and they seem to be just going around in circles.
“Billi is very angry and her deleting Andy from her WhatsApp profile tells those who know her all they need to know. She is still sticking by him but it’s a very confusing and difficult time.”
It is added that friends say Mucklow, who left the couple’s Essex home to stay with her parents on Saturday night, was still getting her head around the situation. She is reportedly demanding that the footballer, who was released by West Bromwich Albion earlier this month, “hands over everything” relating to the incident in order to save their wedding.
The reality TV star reportedly wants to get all of the details, such as the full set of images from the night in question, so they she can get closure. Following a day of buzzing in Dubai, 33-year-old Carroll – now a free agent -is claimed to have ended up passing out in bed, before Wilkey took the photo of her alongside him.
Carroll had allegedly invited Wilkey and her friend, Phoebe Robb – along with his mates – up to his hotel suite to continue the party, leading the infamous snap being taken. It is believed that the majority of his stag crew travelled back to the UK on Friday evening, with the rest following on Saturday.
Explaining Carroll’s afterparty in an interview with The Sun, Wilkey stated: “It was an afterparty. We all went back to his hotel. There was me, Andy and my female friend. I didn’t sleep with him, it wasn’t like that.
“There was three of us in the room. It was a full day and night of drinking. Andy was steaming. We were all drunk. We went back to Andy’s suite and we played some music and he got into bed and passed out. I was there with my friend until the early hours and took the photo as a joke.”
